Carl,

Is the windshield still out of your shell? I'm trying to find out the weight of the stock windshield.

Hi Carl,

No sorry, it is mounted. While I don't have an exact number, it was not very heavy as I recall when lifting it around.

Cheers!
Carl

Default Digit-Dash connectors and testing

While working on a different project, I came across a need for new connectors for the digital dash. After asking around, no one seemed to know where to get them or what the part number was as it is not listed in PET.
Well, here it is: Part # 944.612.311.00 which is a 944 part shared with the 928. I got a kit including 4 connectors and "pins" (whatever the term is for a circuit board connector).

Having new connectors allowed me to fabricate a test connector for verifying that a digital-dash functions (power and mileage) properly. It makes it way more convenient than attaching test leads to individual circuit board leads.
These new connectors also makes it MUCH easier to install a digital-dash in any 928 as a custom harness can be built without having to splice into an old harness.

Cheers!
Carl

That looks quite useful.

It's been so long that I've been following your project but I think I recall you mentioning at one point that you had found a company to develop the digital dash? Has that changed? It sounds like you're doing it yourself now? I've probably missed or forgotten the details but what's the plan there?

That goal has not changed, but it has been delay after delay, so I am hedging my bets, and working on the stock digital dash until I actually have the LCD and BCM (Body Control Module) in hand. That way I don't lose too much time having to go back to the stock setup.
With that said, I was told a few weeks ago that the system was 4 months away from production, so stay tuned as they say

Cheers!
Carl

Has it been 4 months away for the past 4 years? :P

I'm really excited to see what is being worked on. I've been investigating doing it myself but so far I'm not really happy with the LCD display options. The combination of -60C rating, odd size and high resolution is tough to find. At one point I wanted a high refresh display too but gave up on that.

Yes hard to believe, but time flies when one does not pay attention

If you know how to hack firmware, you could get a used Tesla display, which is the same size as my project, I think it runs a 1080 resolution, and those displays are reliable. There are other options, including near 4K, coming out, also in that same form factor.
At the distance the display sits in relation to the driver's eyes, I really don't think a super high resolution display is necessary. Refresh rate, brightness, no glare and color gamut being much more important

A high refresh 1080p IPS would be amazing. An OLED would be better but brightness and size (at reasonable costs) is an issue with them. The problem with Chinese suppliers is that it's often hard to know what you're getting... The idea of potentially hacking a Tesla display is kind of interesting. I'll have to look into it.
